Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM), is a novel manufacturing process that requires less energy consumption without the use of polluting components for the environment and, above all, for the body. CIM gives us the possibility of manufacturing different implant surfaces with a desired roughness and topography design, without the need of subsequent surface treatments, resulting in a cleaner, impurity-free product. This lecture will discuss the clinical performance of zirconia implants manufactured by CIM
